Consigned to the Hermanson Sale on March 17, 2013!  He is #312!
 
Talk about BARREL PROSPECT!!  Cowan is a Pat Cowan (son of SUN FROST, 2x Timed Event Champ, 4x NBHA World Qual, sire of barrel circuit and final champions, AQHA pt. earners in barrels and poles, champ rope horse and champ producer, 3/4 bro. to PC Bronsin, AQHA Performance record)/Sir Austin Duncan (SI-111, is a son of FIRST DOWN DASH, and is a top barrel sire) bred 2006 palomino gelding.  His pedigree is LOADED with money earners - the potential is endless with this boy!  He currently stands about 15.3 hands - will be measuring him again soon - seems like he's 16H!  Great conformation, great black and white striped feet, good bone!  He is broke to ride and was a yearling longeline champion and a halter reserve champion.  Really pays attention to you on the longe line.  Good with grooming (used to electric clippers, baths, and enjoys being groomed), shots, and farrier work (he is REALLY good for farrier work).  Easy mover.  Will put his head down for bridling/unbridling.  Has a lot of try.  Easy to catch - I always give him a treat after getting him haltered.
 
We purchased Cowan as a green broke 3 year old in the spring of 2009.  He had been shown in halter and longe line and had had 30 days training prior to when we purchased him.  He was ridden lightly that year (2009).  Cowan had some light training summer, 2010 and was sent for a 30-day training session in October, 2010.  Spring and summer, 2011 Cowan was used to move and sort cows, was hauled all over for moving cows, for barrel racings, and for youth rodeos.  He was trail ridden, ponied on the trail, at rodeos, and in the arena at rodeos.  He was started on barrels, and was trotting the pattern with a yearning to lope them when his riding was put on the back burner.  He ponied other horses, was ridden in the arena during warm-up at a youth rodeo, and was exhibitioned a handful of times at a couple barrel racings.  His riding was extremely limited between late summer 2011 and January 2013.  We found out we were expecting our first child, and I did not ride him while I was pregnant, nor did he get much riding after baby came around.  However, I started riding again this month (February 2013) now that the weather is somewhat cooperating.  (We don't have an indoor arena nearby and Wyatt and I both have full-time jobs.)  He has been riding very nice!  He has definitely matured since the last time I was riding him.  He is broke, neck reins, pivots on hind and fore quarters, and is rusty on sidepassing and counter-arcs right now.  Has been hobbled a few times.  He takes his leads, and will lope nice circles.  Stands while you get in the saddle and as you dismount.  Just like any horse, he has his quirks.  He will, at times, act barn sour.  However, all it takes is a good kick or two and maybe a swat with the over and under and you're on your way.  And, if you are out riding around home, he'll veer towards the direction of the barn as you trot/lope around, but a spur held to the side and picking up of the inside rein is all that's needed to straighten him out.  Another quirk of his is he can be a spook.  He has been doing good since I started riding him again, like he's matured some, but he will still occasionally look at something and slow down his pace.  If you don't give him the chance to react to it (meaning you keep urging him forward as you notice him look at something), he will forget about it.  In the past, he has not been gun shy - it's been awhile since I've been around him while a gun was fired - which is the only reason I say "in the past".  He has had a rope swung on him as well.  This boy is a super nice horse - he just needs a job.  There is absolutely no buck in him.  If there was, he would have been gone a long time ago!
 
I will be posting videos of him soon.  Just waiting on arrangements for a babysitter and videographer!  Good weather would be a bonus, too!
